the. the british authorities are threatening to extradite assam's to sweden the moment he steps outside the embassy he's wanted there over ickes ations of sexual assault with a whistleblower denies the allegations and fears that he will end up in the hands of the u.s. which is hunting him in connection with his revelations so why would he leave not according to his associates it's due to a new law that bans extradition without charges. what's happened here which hasn't been widely reported but is certainly important is that the laws changed regarding the european arrest warrant the laws changed in the sense that no one no one now in britain can be extradited against their will to a country without being charged and of course as everybody knows what's significant about julian assange has difficulty with is that he's never been charged i kind of prefer that he is raise or leave the embassy as soon as the police presence here is called off and the u.k. has already decided to give him safe passage to ecuador. which of course the i hope

very motivating to impose a curfew on to minors but now that adults are protesting in ferguson missouri the government is placing a curfew on them i'd like to make a small speculation warning this curfew is probably an excuse to break up the protesters once you disperse angry people a lot of their energy to protest is also dispersed but let's think about this if you take a look at the constitution there are two effective hours listed it doesn't say works from nine to five minutes just because crowd control the darkness is much more difficult and scary for the police doesn't mean that your ability to protest vanishes along with the sun in the evening regardless of whether you agree with the protesters or whether you agree with the idea of protesting at night or not i think is beyond question that you cannot impose a curfew on adults in the united states just because the last two presidencies have used the constitution as toilet paper does not make it somehow invalid at night but that's just my opinion.
